Remote Island Holidays

INDONESIA

SIROKTABE

There are few places in the world so beautiful and kept such a secret as the archipelago of Siroktabe. This small, unknown set of desert islands combines beautiful coral, impenetrable jungles and beaches of amazing beauty. Furthermore, due to its difficult access, the opportunity of enjoying these paradises alone and without meeting other travellers is usually very high.

Accompanied by guides, docastawayers will spend several days following a route around different deserted islands by boat and spending their nights in tents. The food will consist of basic dishes cooked on the beach which include delicious fish, fresh from the sea every day. One of the best things about this group of remote islands is that they differ from one to another, which makes it possible to enjoy each individual island as if it were the first, as you move around them; each one has its own atmosphere. This island hopping holiday is perfect for those secluded beach lovers who want to feel truly isolated and faraway from civilization, even though this will involve an additional effort because of the time it takes to reach them. In Siroktabe there is also the alternative option of enjoying the adventure holiday completely alone without the guides.

ACCOMODATION
Tents on uninhabited islands. Overnight stays on a maximum of 4 different deserted islands. A professional guide along with his assistants will accompany clients during the whole adventure holiday. Personal hygiene - by using buckets of water as showers are not available. Fresh water from a well is only available on two of the islands.


ISOLATION LEVEL
Usually, on most Siroktabe islands, you and your partner, or friends, will be alone (with your guide and an occasional assistant). The chances of meeting other travellers visiting the islands are low, but not impossible. The archipelago is remote and located far away from cities. There are tiny fishing villages 15 km (9 miles) away so there are chances of spotting motorized canoes sailing in the area.
The feeling of isolation at this remote island holiday is generally very high
